Another Villain Revealed For ‘The Batman’?

Published

on

Batman can’t simply be the star of his movies without any villains, right? The forthcoming Matt Reeves film already looks great with The Penguin slated to be his main nemesis. Like many Batman films, The Penguin won’t be alone in his journey to overthrow The Caped Crusader.

Brains Of The Operation

A recent casting breakdown has discovered that a character called “The Brain” will be Batman’s second enemy. Debuting in March 1964, The Brain is one of Doom Patrol’s biggest threats. As suggested by his name, this is one of the smartest villains in the DC Universe.

What makes him a huge curveball is that the character is simply a brain in a metallic case. He’s often carried around by his lover Monsieur Mallah, who is a gorilla with a gun. The Brain has appeared in numerous DC cartoons, including Teen Titans and Justice League Action.

Riddle Me This

Given the impracticality of The Brain’s physical appearance, some fans have theorized that this is a red herring. The Brain may actually be a production codename for The Riddler. Just like The Brain, The Riddler possesses a massive intellect. Riddler and The Penguin have teamed up numerous times in the comic books. On the Fox show Gotham, the two villains have a love-hate relationship with each other.

The last time a live-action Riddler appeared on the big screen was 1995’s Batman Forever. Jim Carrey’s performance earned him a Best Villain nomination at the 1996 MTV Movie Awards. The Riddler was set for The Dark Knight Rises and Batman v Superman, but plans were scrapped.

Filming Starts Soon?

The Batman was originally slated for a 2018 release, but now, it’s arriving on June 25, 2021. It is slated to be a detective film inspired by Alfred Hitchcock. “I want to make sure you are experiencing something from the perspective of the main character in the story. I’m a huge Hitchcock fan — I like the idea of being immersed in that perspective,” director Matt Reeves told CNET.

Reeves and co-producers Geoff Johns and Dylan Clark are the only confirmed creatives attached to this project. Casting news will be unveiled in the coming months.
